On the western shore of the Bay of Fundy is Lower Cape, New Brunswick.  This Baptist church was established in 1825 and the Meeting House used by the congregation was destroyed by fire in 1888.  This replacement building was completed in 1892.  The church has been restored and now is covered with vinyl siding and rectangular windows without stained glass.   An old cemetery surrounds the church.

Just over the northeast Maine border is Canada’s Campobello Island.  A bridge was added in the 1960s, so it’s now an easy place to make a day trip to an island less than 10 miles long.  The biggest draw on the island is the International Park (owned jointly by the U.S. and Canada) which features Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s family house which was used most summers for more than 50 years.  There are also a handful of churches still on the island.  Wilson’s Beach United baptist Church was formed in 1867, though I’m not sure if this is their first building from that era.  St. Anne’s Anglican Church is where the Roosevelts would attend a service while on the island.  It was built in 1855.
